VIDEO TUTORIAL: How to create realistic grass & a forest eco-system in 3Ds Max with Carbon Scatter


Following on from the success of our previous tutorials, today I will give a detailed, step-by-step tutorial showing how to easily create realistic grass and a forest eco-system in 3Ds Max with carbon scatter. In this tutorial, I have shown a very simple way to conserve your RAM resources while populating large vegetation scenes or close up realistic grass shots. HQ grass is freely shared online and can be downloaded. However, you will need to obtain a license to use Carbon Scatter for 3DsMax.

Download and see more about carbon scatter here

Also, download HQ grass from here or here – remember to click the option and select free download options all through.

Please watch the video to see a step-by-step approach in creating similar rich scenes for your projects.

Adebisi Oluwatosin.

Very big THANK YOU for this tutorial. It calmed my curiosity on wanting to know how you achieve realism in your grass and vegetation. I do have some questions however, do we have distributors or retailers of carbon scatter in Nigeria or we compulsorily have to buy via the internet?. Also, how do you create vegetation on trellises and sun breakers as done in one of your projects on recreational park?. Thanks for the tutorial again. Anticipating more!

Hi tosin. Thanks for dropping by. I dont know about any authorised distributors in nigeria but I am sure you can purchase online and get your license key. The vegetation on the trellises in our past project was done using ivy plugin. See link below
